Re: [kde-linux] k3b verify problem

Is there a problem with k3b in 2008.1? I've just installed Mandriva on my

time she caught it as it ejected and pushed it in immediately it released.
It didn't verify. I changed the setting so that it wouldn't eject, but the
third burn didn't verify either.

That is, not that they gave a 'bad burn' but that it didn't even start to

Anyone know why or what I can do? It's most embarrassing. I told her that it
was so simple and reliable, but I'll not convince her if she can't verify her

Hmmm, IMHO, an old and longstanding bug in K3B and/or HALD and/or some
other component of KDE that (IIRC) you yourself once mentioned only
rarely afflicts users and then only users of certain hardware ...
anyway, me being one of the lucky victims of this bug (I was the one who
noticed that on my system K3B was burning track0 but then trying to
verify track1), the solution is to set K3B to NOT eject the disc after
burning. Then it goes ahead and verifies just fine. After the
verification is complete, you can eject the disc via K3B's menus/icons.
